ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — As I’m writing this, it strikes me that I don’t believe we have as yet an official name for LeBron James’ celebratory dance. You know the one I’m talking about, where LeBron takes exaggerated big steps and holds his hands out, palms down, and pretends to push down against the court. He’s been doing it for years, in games and commercials, but I don’t think it has a real name attached to it.
Because if it did have a name attached, it would be easier when doing posts like the one last week, where Carolina’s Cam Newton did LeBron’s move to celebrate scoring a touchdown. Or this post you’re reading, where we check out Jamaica’s Usain Bolt, who hit LeBron’s move after anchoring Jamaica’s recent win in the 4×100-meter relays at the World Championships in Beijing.
